Gloria Steinem has teamed up with VICE as the executive producer and host of a new series called Woman, which explores the political impact of violence against women throughout the world.
With a team of all-women journalists, the weekly unscripted series will report on a variety of issues from sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo to unacknowledged murdered and missing women in Canada, femicide in El Salvador, and the incarceration of mothers in America.
“If we confront the problems once marginalized as ‘women’s issues,’ we can tackle the greatest dangers of the 21st century.”
“More than poverty, natural resources, religion or degree of democracy, violence against females is the most reliable predictor of whether a nation will be violent within itself or will use violence against another country—and gender violence has become so great that for the first time, there are now fewer females on earth than males. This series records on-the-ground realities and gives viewers ways to help,” says Steinem in a press release.
Woman will premiere on May 10.
